When my daughter returned home after the quake, I noticed in the short 3-4 weeks that she'd been on course just how much her self confidence and independence had grown....I believe the fundamental life skills are priceless and should be part of every childs education" Philippa Sturt - GAP Year Parent 2011
From my prespective the PHEC course was excellent. It met our needs perfectly and many of the staff have commented that it was the best first aid refresher they have ever done.......I know it took a bit of work prepping for this but it definately paid off. The combination of four staff worked well and you complemented each other brilliantly.....Dave Mangnell - Training Officer- Outward Bound, New Zealand 2011.
This is always an experience of joy and inspiration. Your staff deal emphatically with all my students...This for me is a great day. Bud - Tutor Southern Institute of Technology - Ropes Course Leadership day 2010
"We had a staff meeting yesterday...I asked for some feedback on my choice of provider. The comments about you were all positive - people liked the way you kept us on track in an understated, laid-back kind of way. You also took a realistic approach to purpose/goal setting, which went down well - not too flowery or theoretical. Thank you Mark for what you did and how you worked with us, it went down very well."

The information gathered at your workshop will provide us with a good platform as we prepare our safety management plan and update our safety operations manuals etc."
"The standard of application for the LEOTC contracts was exceptional, and your contract is evidence of a high-quality proposal to deliver the best possible educational opportunities outside the classroom."

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, it really helped me to be in a team and to help others and myself. It really pushed me to my limits and gave me confidence that I didn't have before. Now I know that I can do anything can do anything I set my mind to. Thank you.

I got a lot out of the course and would like to thank you. I have incorparated a lot of the ideas and methods into the induction and training of the new staff here, and my senior staff attempting the same.

I wish to thank you and the Horizons team firstly for providing such a wonderful course and secondly for shepherding my daughter through it. It was obvious at the graduation ceremony how each and every one of the students have benefitted enormously as young adults.......
